I know how daunting adding ANOTHER senior event to your calendar can be... but I also know how important this event, a senior portrait session, is to you. That's why I have gone ahead and taken care of all the prep work for you. I go above and beyond when it comes to my clients.

What is a TRP Senior Session like?

Can I tell you something I wish someone told me when I was a high school senior? Ok, here we go... The next time you take pics like this, it will likely be your wedding day and by then you'll be a completely different person. Capture YOU as you are right now - right in the middle of the most incredible life change ever. You're only a senior ONCE in your life!

This is your year...
Let's make these memories
last a lifetime!

Woo hoo!

Before the senior session ever begins I help you find out exactly what outfits you're going to wear at what locations each look.

There's no reason to panic wondering what to bring or what to wear.

Pre-Session Prep



On the day of your photo shoot, all you have to do is show up! I will handle the rest!

Post-Session Perfection


STEP Three

Your senior year is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Let's do this!

The Process

Secondly, I promise to make you feel comfortable, confident and radiant in front of the camera. I will pose and guide you for our entire shoot - no modeling experience required!

My goal is to enhance your natural beauty...
not change the way you look.

The real, natural, beautiful you. I know you don't want to look like someone else in your pictures... just the best YOU possible. That's why I pride myself on an organic editing process that maintains skin texture, skin tone, colors present in the image, etc. Your teeth won't be a blinding shade of white, your eyes will remain their real color, and it won't look like we edited your pics with an Instagram filter. Nope... no fake tones or processes here! When you book your session with TRP you can rest easy – my images are bold, colorful and consistent.



“Woah Tina… isn’t it a little early to book my senior pics?” HECK NO! And let me tell you why (hint…there’s perks to booking early)!

I usually book out about 3-6 months in advance. Yes… THAT EARLY! WHY?!? Because I like to prepare for your senior session in advance so that it isn’t a hurried thrown together mess the day of your session. So that means if you want a Spring session, the Fall before is the time to book!

Here's a few reasons why booking early is the best choice...

Pinterest Planning: I want YOUR input when it comes to your session and that means you get to start a Pinterest board full of ideas for your senior pics!

This happens 4-6 weeks from your session and you’ll leave knowing exactly what you’re wearing at every single location and what accessories you’ll be pairing your outfit with too! This also ensures that you have time to pick up any last-minute pieces needed to complete your perfect looks!

you’ll also know what your makeup and hair will look like long before your session day! This will help take off session day stress so it will be easy breezy! I also want to give you plenty of time to schedule your hair and nail appointments for that pre-session day mani/pedi and highlight application or root touch up!

Your Session Wardrobe

Stay TRUE TO YOU! While it may be fun to wear bold patterns and colors because your friend did it and it looked great in her pics, if you normally wouldn’t wear those threads, it’s best not to. Stay true to what you would normally wear to best represent yourself.

NEVER Do Before Your Senior Session

5 Things You Should

01 / 05


Spray, airbrush, or any faux tanner can leave you looking orange and can make your ankles, wrists, and knuckles even look dirty. Ew. I get you want to look like you’ve just returned from the Bahamas, but you want to be VERY careful with this. I’ve seen busted wrists, knuckles, and ankles because the color can settle into the creases and wrinkles and it can look rough, friends.

Don’t cut your hair any more than a refreshing trim right before your session. If you hate your new do, it’ll be documented forever in your pictures. Save the big chop for the summer before you leave for college.

The same goes for hair color. Freshen up your look with your usual color / highlights, but don’t make a drastic change. It could not only shock you, but could also change the way your skin tones look, depending on the color of your hair.

Drastic Dye

Just say no to facial peels 3 weeks before your session. It could leave your face red, blotchy and even peeling. Nobody wants to look like beef carpaccio for their senior pics, right?

Trying new facial products could leave your skin looking dry or even worse, with a huge breakout. Yikes! Your skin could even develop a rash from new chemicals, so just save your new routine for post session.
